Shelves: humor
Dilbert: This is the minimum budget I need for my project.
Boss: What could you do with half this amount?
Dilbert: Fail.
Boss: When can you start?
Dilbert: I think I just did.


At its best, Dilbert is hilariously funny. And there are plenty of cartoons in this collection that had me laughing out loud.

At its worst, Dilbert is still a treasury of data that should be studied by anyone who supervises other employees in the workplace.

Dilbert always makes me laugh. I've read this (and the other nine I bought recently) before but they are good quick reads to enjoy on the shorter bus journeys. A nice break from the Berlin Wall history I am working my way through.

Everyone knows some variation of the characters in Dilbert making it perfectly relatable even without a career in engineering.

Wally: "You killed Anne L. Retentive with a typo?!"
Dilbert: "No, she's just in a comma."

Another great Dilbert book from the series! If you love business humor, Scott Adams hits the spot.

We all might have started out like Calvin with a great view of life. But after hitting the workforce we all somewhat become Dilbert. Everyone knows someone like one of the characters in the strips. Highly recommended
